the age of 17. >> she should have just finish her freshman year of college and she's not. >> reporter: claire had a mold on her ankle which developed into melanoma when she was 14. most cases are from sun exposure but doctors were reporting seeing more cases that are not sun related. >> some of these defects are clearly inherited. >> reporter: dermatology pathologist nicki bravo says researchers are finding links between melanoma and puberty. >> children are growing, their moles are growing, it is certainly possible that environment, play ace role. >> reporter: early detection can be difficult, wait times to see doctors continue to increase, nationwide, and so maryann started the claire marie foundation to raise a wearness and sponsor immediate screening for children. >> with every kid, that has an a typical moles taken off before it becomes the disease, that is one child that my daughter has saved. >> reporter: she says no child should wait months to get into see a doctor like her daughter

did. >> good report. good report. bill clinton is now giving eulogy at muhammad ali's funeral. let's listen in. >> i thank you and the members of the family for telling me that he actually as bryant said picked the people to speak and given me a chance to come here. i thank you for what you did to make the second half of his life greater then the just before muhammad ali center and what it has come to represent to so many people. here's what i'd like to say. i spend a lot of time now as i get older and a older and older trying to figure out what makes people tic, how do
5:53 pm

5:55 pm
wonderful thing that have have been said here, i don't remember thinking when i was a kid, that this guy is so smart, and, he never got credit for being as smart as he was. and then, i don't think he ever got the credit for being until later, as wise as he was. in the end besides being a lot of fun to be around and basically a universal solder for our common humanity, i will always think of muhammad ali as a truly truly freeman of faith. being a man of faith, he
5:56 pm
realized he would never be in full control of his life. something like parkinson's could come along. but being free, he realized that life still was open to choices. the choices that muhammad ali made that have brought us all here today and in honor and in love. the only other thing i would like to say, i think we all really, really need to think about, as the first part of his life was done by the triumph of his truly unique gifts. we should never forget them. we should never stop looking at the movies. we should thank will smith for making his movie, we should
5:57 pm
all be thrilled. but the second part of his life was more important because he refused to be imprisoned by a disease that kept him hamstrung longer than nelson mandela was kept in prison in south africa. the second half of his life, he perfected gifts that we all handled, every single solitary one of us has gifts of mind and heart. it showed that he found a way to release them in ways large and small. i asked lonnie if she can remember when they were still living in michigan and i gave a speech in southwest michigan

5:59 pm
great time. he had that feel about, you know, there is no textbook for that, you know, somebody else is in your head. picking up the body language. then lonnie and muhammad ali had me come here when we had dedication to the the muhammad ali center and i was trying to be incredibly old, gray haired, older states man, dignified, i have to elevate this guy so i'm saying all this stuff and very high tones, language and muhammad ali picks up my hand and he put his fingers up. finally after all of the years we have been friends, my enduring image of him is like a little real in three shot, the boxer i fell to as a boy,
6:00 pm
the manny watched take the last steps to light the olympic flame when i was president, and i'll never forget it, i was sitting there in atlanta, by then i felt that i had some sense of what he was living with and i was still weeping like a baby seeing his handshake and his legs shake and knowing by god he was going to make those last few steps no matter what it took the flame would be lit, the fight would be lit and i knew it would happen. >> such a memorable moment in 1996, in atlanta.
